Hi my name is ninja; i am new here and i am posting my first topic right now. My favorite game character would have to be Sora from Kingdom Hearts. Its a badass game. So what is your favorite character?
When I saw this topic, I thought "who is my favorite game character?"
This is an important question, and I don't know the answer!
The short list: Squall Leonheart, Solid Snake, Garrus Vakarian, Mega Man, Gillian Seed, Alucard, Agro (yes, the horse), Miranda (for the booty). I know that I'm forgetting some, too.
Oh man this is tough. Between the classic and current games there has been so many great characters. It would have to be narrowed down from Tali, Rydia (FFIV), Mordin, Jak (and Daxter if you count them as a pair), Crono, Solaire of Astora, Sackboy, Cole McGrath, Handsome Jack, Labrys, Aigis, Zidane, and Wheatly. I'm sure I'm forgetting some and I could probably sit here all night typing name after name if I really wanted to. Tali is the first that I thought of though, so I'd say she's my favorite if I had to pick just one.
That's very hard to say 'cause there are so many, but to name two, Solid Snake and Isaac Clarke. I think Gunner Wright does a fantastic job bringing a voice to Isaac, and it made me care for Isaac as a character much more. In the first one, I cared for him, but it was mostly because it was me in his shoes, and I didn't want to die. Solid Snake... Well, Solid Snake! Again though, there are so many characters to choose from there really isn't a favorite, only favorites.
This guy takes it.
Aveline (dragon age II) probably. A nice character that did not have any sort of awkward romance options.
And honorable mention to Morgan Everett the Illuminatis in Deus Ex 1, for having that genuine protective reasons for wanting to ensure the succession of a giant governing conspiracy. Substantially better than his successors in DX:IW.
Well, the answer for me is Theodore Roosevelt, because he's always the greatest in everything. I think he has some cameo appearances in games, not really sure.
If we're talking about exclusively video game characters though, that's tough. I'm a big fan of Krelian from Xenogears - a wonderfully complex character. On the more simple side though, I love me some Dick Gumshoe from the Phoenix Wright games.
Also, can't say enough about the entire cast of Persona 4 - Yosuke, Teddie, Kanji, Chie, and Adachi in particular.

It's weird how characters are just now becoming real characters in video games. I thought long and hard about it and before this generation, a lot of characters were either just avatars or mascots. You could make the argument that most still are, but it's really great to see actual characters being developed in video games now.
I am baffled that I didn't know this right off the top of my head. I couldn't pick just one but I really like Frog (Chrono Trigger), Zevran (Dragon Age), Rinoa (Final Fantasy 8), Asuka Kazama (Tekken), Shinjiro Aragaki (Persona 3), Garr (Breath of Fire 3), Nariko (Heavenly Sword), and Erica (Catherine). I'm sure there are some badass ones I'm missing too.
